An API key (Application Programming Key) is used to authenticate yourself to an API. It was used along with a secret key to generate signatures and get authenticated by our Securo backend, so you can access our Securo private API.
On the Developer section, accessible from the left panel, you can generate new API keys or revoke the previous ones (for example, if they were leaked).
A webhook is used to connect two different applications. Received all event logs and transaction details from Securo and pass to another application (developer application).
A sandbox is a testing environment for developers to test the integration on testnet. So, developers do not spend any funds or assets during their development. Developers can use the sandbox environment during development for testing our Securo API, which doesn't affect your production data or interact with the mainnet smart contracts.
Our Securo API allows developers to use our API to interact with blockchain networks. Developers can get our API data connected with developer applications.
Some major functions you can use Securo API for are:
An on-ramp payment (Fiat-to-crypto) is a service that allows you to convert fiat money into cryptocurrencies. E.g., Use your fiat money(USD) converted to cryptocurrencies(BTC).
Our Securo application supports non-custodial/self-custody transactions with Metamask and WalletConnect integration.
Securo does not have permission to access user assets, as we only provide the infrastructure to our users.
Yes, users need to pay a gas fee to approve transactions. But thanks to Biconomy integration in Securo API, users don't have to pay gas for the actual swap transactions.
